nations to focus more on people and less on iraq this positive words from u.s. president donald trump ahead of his first united nations general assembly. kurdish leaders in iraq say they will push ahead with an independent state despite a supreme court ruling suspending next week's referendum. facing starvation and disease in bangladesh we report on the dire conditions being injured by the hinge of muslims he fled. on back behind the microphone to shock appearance by the former white house press secretary charles i said bring down the house the any. of the latest sports news including. the us myself that's not a warning. i think it's like hell. around. less than eighty days
a british cyclist completes a record breaking journey. u.s. president donald trump has made his debut at the united nations in new york where he pushed for reforms that would quote focus more people and less on the bureaucracy president trump said the u.n. has not yet reached its potential because of mismanagement within the organization but in sharp contrast to his first position to his position of first becoming president promised the u.s. would partner with it to help it become a stronger and more effective force the peace around the world on our diplomatic as a james bays joins us live now from the u.n. headquarters in new york so james this is wasn't quite the approach that many people might have been expecting donald trump to take. the u.n. had been very worried i can tell you that early on in the trumpet ministration at
the white house i was talking to a senior white house official and when we spoke about the u.n. that official said we are going to get them and that was that reference i think to their plans to slash the budget of this organization to change their view of multilateral diplomacy but that has not happened it appears that what the u.n. got today was an occasion where they've dodged a bullet i think some rather clever diplomacy. diplomats will wary about this transfer strip to the united nations as president. trump has railed against the u.n. many times in the past suggesting it's inefficient and bloated at times this transactional america first president that seemed to question the entire international system that's existed since the u.n.
was set up at the end of world war two ahead of the meeting there was some unease about what this unpredictable president might say but he only seemed concerned about how the microphones worked his red. result. when trump finally spoke there would have been a big sigh of relief felt across the united nations he now seems to be a fan of the organization. mr secretary general the united states and the member states president air support. this great reform vision we pledge to be partners in your work and i am confident that if we work together and champion truly baldry forms the united nations will emerge as a stronger more effective more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world so instead of declaring war on the un trump seems already to be declaring a victory this turnabout it seems the result of an unlikely partnership between the
us ambassador nikki haley and the u.n. secretary general who like the president took up his post in january and tonio good terrorists is a canny political operator who knows how all this needs to be presented to someone recently asked what keeps me up at night. and my answer was simple bureaucracy fragmented structures byzantine procedures and endless red tape the president will be staying in new york for most of the week he gives his longer formal address to the u.n. on choose day as well as holding meetings with other world leaders with north korea high on the agenda one of those world leaders that president trump has already met is of course james the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu do we know what's come out of that meeting. well we only know what reporters saw at the beginning of the meeting again trump talking very optimistically about peace in the middle
east between the israelis and palestinians saying is a good chance it could happen as he spoke to reporters very briefly before the meeting started some more details of also emerged from a video that's been posted on facebook by the israelis a video of president trump with the israeli prime minister some raising eyebrows about the fact he called the israeli prime minister by his nickname bibi but referred to the palestinians as the other side this is clearly going to be an issue the situation in the middle east is going to come up here throughout the week at the general assembly in fact mr netanyahu expected to give his speech on the same day as president trump that's here on tuesday so in a matter of hours now at the general assembly of course remember that promise nothing you know who will not just be talking about peace between israelis and palestinians here we're talking about his other great concern which is the iran
nuclear deal that's another key issue here at the united nations because president trump is not happy with that deal what will he do about his own happiness we'll watch very closely and of course also on the agenda this week is a speech by the president of iran right james that the u.n. for us thank you. kurdish leaders in iraq say they will go ahead with an independent vote next week despite a ruling by iraq's supreme court suspending the referendum the court ordered the poll be postponed until questions about its legality have been addressed the referendum will be held on september twenty fifth in the three provinces that make up the oil rich kurdish region as well as disputed territories the government of baghdad regional neighbors iran and turkey and the u.s. of all calling for the votes to be delayed hearing it could create instability and . could benefit how does it was hold up to me to be a last the capital of the kurdish region in northern iraq that has more details.
more pressure to postpone the referendum this time coming from the british government the u.k. defense secretary michael fallon is here in erbil where he is meeting with kurdish president masoud barzani he was earlier in baghdad and he said from there that he was coming here to try to convince the kurds to postpone the vote he also said that the u.k. was firmly against it at this point now this comes after earlier in the day the federal supreme court issued a state order for the suspension of the referendum until it reaches a final ruling now this is actually an order that should be barring the four do kurds even though shortly after the supreme court expressed itself a statement came out from the regional prime minister's office saying that the referendum was still going ahead but according to the thousand and five
constitution well the federal supreme court is the authority that rules in case of ethnic sectarian and regional political problems in this country and the kurds were fully part of the process of writing that constitution so they are at the moment at least publicly showing still that posture of the foreign whether there are some sort of negotiation going on between erbil and baghdad at the moment is something that one could fairly be confident about syrian activists say government troops are close to encircling a pocket of eisel fighters india resume after crossing the euphrates river serves as a line between government forces and u.s. backed rebels. syrian government troops have been fighting are still on the west side of the river where u.s. backed rebels are battling the armed groups on the east side has this update. the
syrian army. are competing to take over territory that was under the control of ice in particular areas in the us or and also. but now the situation might change because the syrian army by crossing the eastern riverbank of the euphrates sends a message that is committed to control all those areas which puts it on a collision course with the. likely to see clashes between the and the syrian army in the coming days but now the problem with this is that the as the f.e.c. and by the americans as a key ally in the fight against isis while the russians provide significant military assistance the syrian army and if there are any clashes between the s.d.f. of the syrian army this could lead to more tension between the americans and the

they are struggling to scale up operations quickly enough they want more help to take care of health issues provide shelter and other basic needs i think international donors now have to step up to the plate and that is not just the traditional donors of the united states europe but also nontraditional donors in particular countries in the middle east and countries in the region in southeast asia particularly those on the ground say this is now a global crisis and needs a sustained global response until that happens these refugees will have to make do with what little concept or way mars star al-jazeera bangladesh. or will the one hundred thousand protesters in bangladesh capital came out in support of the right. to protest against the country's crackdown on the muslim. minority group the

a damaging south korea's tourism industry the number of visitors from china has already fallen by seventy percent but not everyone is put off by talk of missile launches and military drills as andrew thomas reports with tensions on the korean peninsula building south korea on monday hosted a conference of military leaders from across asia pacific giving the keynote address was a former south korean minister who's also head to the united nations i'd like to remind north korea the last single nation has a subway it is a bit of gazed you know numerous the united international community in the course of history. in the south rising tensions are having an economic impact at an hour from seoul it's easy to see into the demilitarized zone the d.m.z. and beyond that the mountains of north korea the lookout has long been
a tourist site people can even take a train from here to just inside the d.m.z. and despite the tensions some visitors are still coming for me my tickets were booked when advanced so i had to make it and we kept checking the news just to make sure that everything's kind of ok my sister was very white and this is actually getting married next week and she was very worried that something was going to happen to me and i won't be able to make it back so it was a bit she was quite. a large military presence here and so many civilians that the four and five into like take care of the u.s. citizens and let us know if something is about to go down but visitor numbers to south korea overrule the down forty percent fewer came in july compared with the same month a year ago on sunday most raw eats at the funfair which strangely is part of the engine site wouldn't. the latest heightened tension is only weak so when really it's true well you get to judge the impact of markets on tourism here so far the
missing tourists are exploring more like politics with. chinese tourists are the ones almost entirely absent in march china angered by south korea's deployment of the fat anti missile system banned its citizens from taking package tours to south korea but. last year about half of the seventeen million tourists to south korea were from china but this year chinese tourists are down by seventy percent that spink felt here it's hurting my business sales are roughly a third down in the longer this concern about next year's winter olympics in pyongyang ticket sales so far poor the international olympic committee said last week there is no plan b. . the to move the games if tensions escalate but they can't make spectators come south korea's defense ministry on monday said it believed the north was ready for a new nuclear test if it comes that will only heighten the tension and dissuade

find themselves with an increasingly important to global role as many nations are uncertain about the u.s. looking to germany for leadership but as long as lee reports that is a situation which makes some germans uncomfortable. deep in the forest west of berlin nato is war gaming again one of its members has been attacks there are casualties and all the other states have joined in to help tend to the wounded the exercise is called vigorous warrior which hardly invokes the sort of fire and fury rhetoric of donald trump we are the host nation we are the nation for this exercise and of course we want to do it perfect we want to be a very good officer and i think we achieved a store but we are not alone there are twenty five other nations and they all girls was in this exercise the generals watching come from twenty five nato allies and other invited states they know where germany's red lines have always been on the
battlefield this is where germany feels most comfortable helping out medical excellence logistical support that's all fine but when it comes to things like attacking other countries invading other countries killing people there is no appetite for that at all. this is heidelberg a perfect example of liberal educated germany where merkel support is guaranteed by the wealthy middle aged and middle class no doubt many take pride in the global admiration for the chancellor but asked them should germany back it up now with a more aggressive military position staying us i think germany and the rest of the world should be disarming i believe germany's doing enough for nato we shouldn't be spending any more. it's a no brainer why germans don't like to be seen invading other countries the nazi scar has never healed when they pushed it like wrongly calling in an american air strike in afghanistan nearly ten years ago which mistakenly killed dozens of
civilians there was a national shockwave and the defense minister resigns the source of political guilt trip that doesn't happen in the u.s. or u.k. nor is the most powerful country in europe impressed with how its neighbors have prosecuted wars in places like libya if we go in with military force it needs to be backed up and slanged by civilian measures as well so there is diplomatic there is civil in crisis management and there is also the idea of what happens afterwards how do we rebuild a country which has not been necessarily the prime objective by recent interventions by other european countries u.s. president trump demands germany spend far more on defense merkel's opponents on the left say that would make her an american stooge in a fragile world germany is looking for other solutions than war or easily al-jazeera in germany now is chile celebrates its national independence state

hello there the weather is generally quite quiet across the middle east at the moment there's not a great deal of cloud showing up on our charts or to choose to there what you do notice is the winds are feeding down from the north so for amante there the temperatures are just easing now so around twenty four or twenty five with the maximum over the next couple of days meanwhile for kuwait the temperatures certainly are easing here in fact force on tuesday and wednesday looks like they'll be again so around forty five or forty six so still very very hot force here beirut though more bearable will be at around twenty eight which is eighty two in fahrenheit a bit further towards the south and here in doha the winds are still filtering in from the east still bringing in all humidity but the maximum now is around thirty nine or forty degrees and no major change as we head through the next few days you still see a fair amount of cloud around the coast of oman here that just by squeeze out one or two showers particularly around thirty one degrees will be the maximum here but further towards the south and we've had a fair amount of cloud a few outbreaks of rain there in the eastern parts of south africa that system has

guideline for how long a leader has at the famous podium but over the years. not everyone stuck to the time frame for the script. i want to take a libyan leader moammar gadhafi for example eight years ago on stage for ninety six minutes even ripping a page from the u.n. charter the translator reportedly fainted or than an hour into it but if you think that was long cuban president fidel castro back in one thousand nine hundred sixty one he spoke for foreign harf hours. for others it was less about the length of the speech and more about getting attention zimbabwe's president robert mugabe with this attack on homosexuality we are not gays but. it got a reaction but not quite the walkout as when iran's former leader mahmoud ahmadinejad's spoken two thousand and eleven. boys that. it wasn't the first time
delegates had left in protest but it was certainly the most notable. only says. the un general assembly has frequently been a stage for theater and emotion this from soviet leader nikita khrushchev and palestinian leader yasser arafat in one thousand nine hundred seventy four when i come bearing all branches one hand and the freedom fighters going in the other to not let the olive branch fall for my hand. and two thousand and six u.s. president george w. bush and his venezuelan counterpart hugo chavez ups the stakes in drama and rivalry every nation in this chamber has responsibility it's got this response the following day. they were there yesterday the devil came here. right here. and it smells of sulfur still today while
a touch of flamboyance might attract attention as days of speechmaking wind on other world leaders have resorted to props to make their point israel's leader in two thousand and nine. ending in two thousand and twelve this is. this is a fuse and on a final note proof that world leaders are only human this handwritten note from u.s. president george w. bush it reads i think i may need a bathroom break. understandable given the speeches and sideline meetings. go on for a day or so maybe on the hand and his ear. all of us look forward to in the coming days now nepal has completed its first local elections in nearly two decades after voting finally took place in an unstable southern province most of the country voted in may but the local polls were repeatedly delayed in the number
